, public comment is closed. so, colleagues, this is now in the hands of the committee. supervisor farrell has proposed amendments, and perhaps first as to the amendments, before we decide what to do with the matter, we can perhaps discuss that first. but -- no. president chiu. supervisor farrell. >> supervisor farrell: thank you, chair, and to my colleagues and to the people who spoke today on both sides of the issue. i think as we knew going in this, there is passion on both sides here. and i very much respect that as the author of this legislation. and what i neglected to do earlier, was fail to thank my cosponsor, supervisor wiener, and thank you for your leadership on this issue as well. as i spoke before and mentioned this legislation was designed to benefit everyone. this wasn't a one-sided piece of legislation. it isn't designed to pit homeowners against renters and the rhetoric that has come out in talking about this legislation has done that and that is extremely unfortunate. what we did was to, in this legislation, is to support both homeowners and t.i.c. owners but also renters

to speak against this legislation. supervisors wiener and farrell, i guess supervisor farrell isn't here but you spoke forcefully in support of rent control earlier in the afternoon and yet your actions contradict your words because you're attempting to chip away at rent control right now. our largest source of affordable housing in it san francisco. supervisor kim, you had great questions earlier, questions about the ability of this legislation to withstand palmer lawsuits. regarding parkmerced, if people, who -- if the people who crafted the deal to make the garden apartments rent controlled in perpetuity or at least for the duration of the current tenant had not been so worried about the illegal weaknesses of the parkmerced deal there would have been no need to create the 200 million backup fund to protect tenants in case of court challenges and i imagine that 200 fund itself is probably on legal shaky ground. that could be challenged. so if the parkmerced development is on shaky legal ground i can only imagine this legislation is on equally shaky legal ground. there needs to be affor

, supervisor wiener and mr. farrell are having a conversation instead of listening to the public. various of the other supervisors were talking with each other or texting, i think that is very unfortunate. i think i said last week that i hoped supervisors will pay attention to the public which they presumably serve. i hope that particularly the new supervisors don't get off on this bastard. i see that there is no clock going. if you could correct that for the public it would help particularly when you have an illegal two-minute time limit for the public and yank the plug after two minutes. it is good to honor gay folks but when there is an opportunity for fund raising by folks that have an inside track the same folks concerned about making good pr about gay things don't really care about other things. in the -- heights branch library a gay artist created a mural which was not only allowed destroyed, but some of the folks here actively participated in getting rid of. a bisexual singer on it in that mural wiped out. nothing remains. and multiracial mural that also honored women working g
